What is it?
These services are provided for current and retired professional squash players competing on the PSA Tour, fully funded by the PSA Foundation. One-to-one counselling is a form of talking therapy designed to move individuals forward to a place of balanced emotional wellbeing. To facilitate treatment, Sporting Chance has a large network of highly qualified and fully insured counsellors. All the counsellors in their network operate within guidelines and principles established with Sporting Chance; some are ex-professional sportsmen or women who have trained as therapists or counsellors after retiring from sport.
What to expect when you contact Sporting Chance:
- If you are making the initial call, it will be answered by a trained counsellor in English
- Alternatively, you can complete their contact form and a trained counsellor will give you a call in your choice of language
- During the initial call or message, let them know you are a squash player from the PSA Tour.
- You can say where you are calling from, so that future correspondence or sessions with a counsellor work for you and your time zone.
- If you’re having any follow up phone or video calls, these will happen within 24 hours of the initial call, from a trained therapist in a field relating to your current situation.
